Lord Monckton Trashes Al Gore’s Global Warming Nonsense
Posted By Matthew Vadum On November 1, 2009 @ 10:41 pm In NewsReal Blog | No Comments
Lord Christopher Monckton (pictured above), former UN Ambassador John Bolton, and Glenn Beck examined Al Gore’s shoddy global warming science and hypocrisy, along with the dangers of the Copenhagen climate treaty on Beck’s Friday TV show.
Monckton said the treaty would lead to global government. The powers provided in the pact are “enormous,” he said. “They are greater than any government has now.”
Lord Monckton challenged Al Gore to debate him on the science of global warming. Addressing Gore, Monckton said, “and if you don’t dare, I want you to remain silent about that subject forever from now on.”
Of course Gore won’t accept the challenge. Others have asked Gore to debate the science of global warming and he’s consistently refused to do so.
He has much to lose — financially and otherwise.
How is Gore trying to be a climate change profiteer? Essentially, he wants to make a fortune by creating a new market for a product that he is attempting to create by legislative fiat. If he succeeds and carbon emissions trading comes to the United States, Al Gore will be uniquely positioned to cash in. He’s made sure of that.
Gore himself is chairman and founder of a private equity firm called Generation Investment Management (GIM). He says the London-based firm invests money from institutions and wealthy investors in companies that are becoming environmentally-friendly, to use green parlance. GIM appears to have considerable influence over major carbon credit trading firms: the U.S.-based Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX) and the U.K.-based Carbon Neutral Company (CNC). CCX appears to be the only firm in the U.S. that claims to trade carbon credits.
As a politician, Gore speaks warmly of transparency. But as GIM chairman, Gore has not been forthcoming. Little is known about his shadowy firm’s finances, where it gets funding and what projects it supports.
Given that he already has the media and much of Big Business on his side, Gore must believe it pays to shut up.
